Easter Rocky Road

Easter Rocky Road

If Easter has past when you’re reading this, then this recipe for Easter Rocky Road is perfect for using up your leftover Easter chocolate (if you have any!) by combining it all into one delicious treat! I’ve used lots of Easter favourites in this recipe like Creme Eggs and Mini Eggs, but you can use whatever leftover Easter chocolate you have in the house. You could even use Easter eggs as the chocolate part of the recipe! As it’s a no bake recipe it’s great for making with the kids and it’s such a simple process for anyone to follow as you don’t even have to turn the oven on!

I started by preparing the fillings in a bowl, I broke up the biscuits and added the marshmallows, mini eggs and golden eggs. To make sure the Easter Rocky Road stayed vegetarian friendly I used gelatine free Freedom Mallows, which I have mentioned before as I’m a big fan of them.

Then I melted both chocolates, the golden syrup and butter together in a pan on a low heat.

I mixed almost all of the chocolate into the bowl of fillings until well coated. Then I put the mixture into the tin and pressed it down. I like to save a bit of the melted chocolate mixture to pour on top and fill in any gaps. Then I dotted the top with the Creme Eggs, Malteser Bunnies, and more Mini Eggs and Golden Eggs. It went in the fridge to set for a few hours.

Once it was set I removed the Easter Rocky Road from the tin and sliced it into squares.

The Easter Rocky Road was indulgent chocolate heaven! Rocky road is always such a yummy treat, and having all the Easter chocolate makes it so tasty and addictive.

  • 350 g Milk chocolate
  • 200 g Butter or baking spread
  • 150 g Golden syrup
  • 100 g Digestive biscuits Broken up

  • 60 g Galaxy golden eggs
  • 5 Mini Malteser Bunnies
  • 4 Creme Eggs cut in half

Instructions

  1. Line an 8" square tin with baking paper. I grease the tin first with a little butter to help the paper stick to it

  2. Prepare a mixing bowl filled with the broken up biscuits, the marshmallows, the mini eggs and the golden eggs

  3. Put the butter, golden syrup, dark chocolate and milk chocolate in a pan and melt together on a low heat, stirring together as it melts

  4. Once it's fully melted and combined, take the pan off the heat

  5. Pour almost all of the chocolate mixture into the mixing bowl of biscuits and mini eggs etc. and stir to fully coat the fillings with chocolate

  6. Pour the whole lot into the lined tin, smooth down then add the remaining chocolate mixture to fill in any gaps

  7. Add the Creme Eggs, Malteser Bunnies and remaining mini eggs and golden eggs on top

  8. Put in the fridge overnight, or for 3-4 hours to set

  9. Remove from the tin and slice into pieces. Store in the fridge for a firmer texture, or in a cool place for a softer texture

  10. If you store the rocky road in an airtight container it can be kept for 1 - 2 weeks, and up to 3 weeks in the fridge. It is best kept in the fridge

Recipe Notes

You can use any combination of milk and dark chocolate as long as the total amount of 450g is reached. Or you could use all dark or all milk.

Creme Egg Trifle

Creme Egg Trifle

Feast your eyes on this epic Creme Egg Trifle! It’s made up of a layer of chocolate brownies, then chocolate custard, then vanilla cheesecake with Creme Egg halves, then I’ve topped it with whipped cream and custard (to look like a fried egg) and of course more Creme Eggs on top! This is the ultimate Easter dessert to impress your friends and family, and best of all it’s easy to make. If you use shop bought brownies then there is no baking involved at all!

Jump straight to the recipe!

To start, I made the chocolate custard. I simply warmed some ready made custard in a pan on a low heat, then added some milk chocolate and stirred until it melted into it. Then I put it in the fridge to cool completely. If you can easily find ready made chocolate custard then you could use that instead to skip this step.

I made homemade brownies for the brownie layer, but you can of course use shop bought if it’s easier. In my trifle dish, I started with the layer of brownie pieces.

Then I poured over the chocolate custard

I made the cheesecake layer by mixing together the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla extract. Once it was smooth with no lumps I added the double cream and whisked until it was very thick and held it’s shape.

I piped some cheesecake mixture over the custard, then added the creme egg halves around the sides. I found adding the Creme Eggs directly on the custard didn’t work as they sank into it, so a layer of cheesecake beneath them keeps them in place. Then I filled in the middle and covered the creme eggs with the remaining mixture and smoothed the top.

To decorate the top I whipped up some cream and piped it around the edges, then I added custard in the middle so it looked like a fried egg!

Creme Egg Trifle

For the final touches on the Creme Egg Trifle, I added more Creme Egg halves on top and some sprinkles.

Creme Egg Trifle

I am so pleased with how the Creme Egg Trifle looks! I imagined this idea for a long time, and although it’s a bit messier around the sides than I wanted, I think that is the nature of trifles! This Creme Egg Trifle is such a decadent and impressive dessert for Easter, plus it’s easy to make too, especially if you use shop bought brownies.

Creme Egg Trifle

Servings 10

Ingredients

For the brownies - or use shop bought!

  • 350 g Dark chocolate
  • 250 g Butter or baking spread
  • 250 g Dark brown sugar
  • 3 Eggs large
  • 120 g Plain flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder

For the chocolate custard

  • 900 g Ready made custard
  • 150 g Milk chocolate

For the cheesecake

  • 750 g Full fat cream cheese
  • 125 g Icing sugar
  • 300 ml Double cream
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 6 Cadbury's Creme Eggs cut in half

For the decoration

  • 100 g Ready made custard
  • 4 Cadbury's Creme Eggs cut in half
  • 300ml Double cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp Icing sugar
  • Sprinkles optional

Instructions

If you are making the brownies from scratch:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180C/160C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4 and grease and line a 12" x 9" traybake tin

  2. Melt the dark chocolate and butter in a pan on a low heat, once melted, set aside to cool for 5 minutes

  3. In a bowl, whisk together the dark brown sugar and the eggs until frothy,

  4. Slowly pour the melted chocolate and butter into the mixture, whilst constantly whisking

  5. Add the plain flour and baking powder and mix in

  6. Bake it for 35 minutes, then leave to cool completely

If using shop bought brownies:

  1. To make the chocolate custard, warm the custard in a pan on a low heat, then add the chocolate and stir until melted

  2. Pour the chocolate into a bowl, cover with cling film and make sure the cling film touches the top of the custard to prevent a skin from forming. Then put in the fridge to cool completely

  3. Start layering your trifle with a layer of brownies at the bottom of a trifle dish - the dish I used is 12cm deep and 20cm diameter

  4. Then add the cooled chocolate custard

  5. For the cheesecake layer use a food mixer with a whisk attachment or an electric hand whisk to mix together the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla extract until smooth with no lumps

  6. Add the double cream and whisk until it is very thick and holds it's shape

  7. Pipe or spoon a thin layer of the cheesecake over the custard, you need to do this so the Creme Eggs have something to 'sit' on - otherwise they will sink into the custard layer

  8. Add the Creme Egg halves around the sides, then cover them with the rest of the cheesecake mixture and smooth it over the top, then put it in the fridge overnight, or for at least 4 hours, to set

  9. To decorate, whip up the double cream with the icing sugar and vanilla, and pipe or dollop it all around the edges

  10. Add the custard in the middle, and the Creme Eggs around the edge - and some sprinkles if you like

  11. Serve immediately, store any leftovers in the fridge and eat within 2 days

Creme Egg Brownies

Creme Egg Brownies

Creme Egg Brownies are not a new concept, but they’ve remained popular over the years because they’re so damn delicious! I’ve made them several times but I hadn’t shared the recipe on my blog yet, so I thought it was about time as they are so indulgent and heavenly! So I’ve combined my favourite gooey chocolate brownie recipe with Creme Eggs baked into it for the ultimate Easter treat. They are super easy to make too, and the secret is that you add the Creme Eggs in part way through baking so they don’t melt completely. If you make one thing this Easter let it be these Creme Egg Brownies!

Jump straight to the recipe!

I started by melting the dark chocolate and butter together in a pan on a low heat. I let it cool for 5 minutes.

In a bowl I whisked together the eggs and light brown sugar.

I added the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture, whisking constantly as I poured it in. Then I added the plain flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.

I poured the batter into a lined traybake tin.

While it baked for 20 minutes, I cut the Creme Eggs in half.

I took the brownies out of the oven, pressed the Creme Eggs in, then they went back in the oven for another 10 minutes.

Creme Egg Brownies

I let the Creme Egg Brownies cool completely before removing from the tin and slicing up.

Creme Egg Brownies

The Creme Egg Brownies were absolutely delicious as I expected! The brownie is super gooey and rich, and the Creme Egg on top is the perfect Easter addition!
